Christmas Fun Week! So, here we are, Christmas! We all made the most of the non-uniform opportunity this week and we looked amazing! Here are just some of the other things that we did:- We have iced Christmassy biscuits and we have made shining star biscuits with melted boiled sweets in the middle. We have been finishing off our Christmas crafts. We tried to wrap Miss Edwards up in wrapping paper but she kept wriggling so we had to let her go! Mrs Hilton helped us to write l
It was cold and wet on Monday morning but that didn’t stop the children from heading out on a lovely long walk.
They wrapped up in warm coats and hats and set off to explore, searching for puddles to splash in along the way. The children who stayed in baked biscuits and joined in with craft activities. On Tuesday the children spent the day doing more Christmas crafts and baking. They sang lots of Christmas songs and told each other about their Christmas trees at home. On Wed

We have been practising writing our names on labels too. On Tuesday we made jam tarts that didn’t quite end up looking like jam tarts. We love to experiment when we are cooking! We performed in the Christmas Concert on Wednesday and Thursday. It was very exciting! We wore Christma

The children really enjoyed the walk, especially like spending some time in the park. Jack Frost had visited during the night and everything was covered in a pretty white frost.

Whilst walking they looked in shop windows, said hello to the ducks that were swimming in the pond and greeted everyone they saw with a polite “Good Morning.” Fish was on the menu for lunch and Mrs Irwin spent some time showing us whole fish. We looked at mackerel and trout.
We looked at the eyes, fins and tails. The children were intrigued and asked man
This week it has been like Winter with beautiful blue skies and sparkly white frost. We have had plenty of opportunities to look at ice. We have been making our own ice it by leaving containers full of water outside overnight. We have been smashing it, crunching it, looking through it and some of us tried to eat it! Yukky! We talked about how ice and frost is formed and what happens when it gets warm. We did experiments by leaving blocks of ice hanging outside. We went fo
